Citadel Campus to Remain Closed Monday, Oct. 10

UPDATED AS OF 4:00 P.M. 10-9-2016

The Governor has lifted the evacuation order and members of The Citadel community are slowly making their way back to Charleston today and tomorrow. Members of the Corps are required to report no later than 10:30 P.M. tomorrow (Monday) night and normal classes and operations will resume Tuesday for cadets, students, faculty, and staff. Though most major roads are open, there is still flooding on ancillary roadways, in addition to other hazards. Please use caution at all times, DO NOT drive through standing water and alert your TAC officers or supervisors if for some reason you cannot abide by the return instructions above. Safe travels!

9:00 P.M. 10-08-2016

Please read this message carefully and completely as the schedule has changed and we have a request for assistance:

The storm has passed and we are thankful that damage to The Citadel is minimal. We hope everyone in The Citadel fared well and is safe and sound.

Pending the lifting of the Governor’s evacuation orders, and to ensure a safe return with full accessibility to roadways and utilities in the Charleston area cadets, students, faculty and staff should expect to resume normal operations Tuesday, Oct. 11.


  • Members of the Corps should report for formation by 10:30p.m. Monday. Safety is top priority and if there are circumstances that interfere with the ability to make the return, cadets should notify their TAC officers immediately.
  • All barracks will open at 2p.m. Sunday for returning cadets.
  • Cadets currently in Charleston County that are willing to assist with campus cleanup should meet the Facilities and Engineering staff in front of Padgett-Thomas Barracks at 3p.m. Sunday. Cadets that are conduct deficient can earn three-for-one credits for restrictions.
  • Mess Hall hours will be: 5-7p.m. Sunday, 9-noon Monday and 5-7p.m. Monday.
  • Classes resume as normal Tuesday.


  • Evening Undergraduate students and Citadel Graduate College students should plan to resume classes according to normal schedules on Tuesday, or contact their professors if they cannot.


  • Faculty and staff should anticipate resuming normal schedules Tuesday. If you cannot, please contact your supervisor as soon as possible to make arrangements.


  • We still plan to move forward with Parents’ Weekend activities this coming weekend, as communicated earlier. The revised schedule can be found on here.

Again, safety is of paramount importance so please use caution and be sure to communicate your circumstances to the appropriate persons if you cannot comply with the instructions above. Please check back as further updates will be made when required.
